Island View House B&B
Ranked #1 of 13 Roundstone B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 August 2011

Myself and my husband stayed in Roundstone for one night, it is a fantastic little village and the drive to it has spectacular scenery. Island View House B&B was lovely, great hospitality and a really nice modern room with a great breakfast. Would definitely return and would recommend it. O'Dowds Pub is great for a pint and bar food, full of character.

We turned up in Roundstone unplanned and lucked out to find the Island View House had a spare room for 2 nights. As stated by others Maurice is a wonderful host and was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great and atmosphere was very relaxed. Would love to return as we left a number of beaches and local spots unexplored..

The warm friendly welcome we received at island View set the tone for a wonderful break away in the beauty that is Roundstone. The family room was a bright and cheerful and we all enjoyed the great view of the sea from our bedroom window. Also, the black out blinds were wonderful and ensured all the family slept on. Breakfast was delicious and it was nice to have the option of fresh fruit and delicious yogurts,a change from the full Irish Breakfast. Finally, having stayed in various B&B's over the past 20 years holidaying in Roundstone, Island View tops them all.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 2 a family room at the front of the B&B with a great view.

The view from the second floor was beautiful, and the breakfast was very good. Maurice was a very gracious host offering tips on where to eat or visit. The room was comfortable, and its location was great as it was close to the excellent restaurants.

Really enjoyed our stay in the truly beautiful village of Roundstone, loved this B&B - very comfortable house with tv and tea and coffee making in rooms and most welcoming hosts. Great view too from the sea facing rooms. Roundstone is a small village yet has great restaurants and a really wonderful treasure trove vintage story a couple of doors down from the B&B. Looking forward to visiting again. We went to O'Dowds for dinner and the food was wonderful - very busy so maybe try and book if you can.
